About the Webinar


Visualizing quality and sharing it among stakeholders is the mandate for reforming systems to be high-quality and efficient. This is getting more and more important in health care under the limited funds and resources in aging societies. Regional-level Quality Indicators are the key driving force for reforms. Driven by professionals and by policies, new mechanisms of visualization and stakeholder collaboration are emerging to reform and construct high-quality, efficient and equitable systems in health care.
